ClassDesign: Creating Workshops and Webinars Students Will Love

Increase your income teaching what you know.


A strong workshop design allows:

  • students to learn with ease
  • teachers to speak with skill, comfort and centeredness
  • both to build a trusting business relationship which can continue long after the class ends

For many years, I was the International Director of Education for a software company and creating new educational class was we did, every day of the year. Since then I've been running a school for the self-employed, and I've designed over 127 classes!

I have studied the structure, process, and psychology of good adult educational design and I'm happy to share my knowledge with you and to help you create an outstanding class for your own students!

You Will Learn

In this 4-week virutal workshop, you will learn:

  • the psychology of how adults learn
  • how to design a structured, multidimensional workshop or webinar
  • how to construct lessons and lesson plans for optimum student learning
  • the art of creating powerful exercises
  • how to discover the needs of your students
  • how to make your lessons interactive so adults won't be bored
  • how to conduct post-class evaluations to give you valuable feedback
  • choosing the best delivery method for you and your students
  • the easy way to convert lessons and exercises from a live class format to a webinar or virtual self-study format (and vice versa)
  • best practices in webinar slide design

Karyn Greenstreet's 'ClassDesign' workshop was well worth my money and time. The class was jam-packed with the information that I needed to create a workshop that fit my target market's needs. By the end of the class, I had a completed an instructive, thought-provoking, and fun workshop!

My workshop has clear objectives, individual lesson plans, group and individual exercises, warm-ups and more. I also learned of critical resources that will help me to market my class and assess how it went.

The best part of Karyn's class was her feedback: every week I got to email her my homework (a new section of my workshop, which was based on the class lesson) and she promptly sent me a helpful critique of my work.

This class is a great investment for anyone who wants to improve or create a workshop or class!

Length of Workshop

We meet for 90 minutes each week for four weeks, via video conferencing (Zoom)

Each class session is 11:00 am - 12:30 pm eastern (8:00 am - 9:30 am pacific).


This workshop is offered via live video conference (Zoom) format with me.

Virtual video workshops are convenient and practical, where you can interact with me and the other participants. They are a great way to learn, because you can learn from the convenience of your home or office.

The live virtual workshop sessions will be recorded, so if you miss a session, you will be able to download the audio & video recording of the class and listen to it at your leisure. Class recordings are generally made available within 48 hours of the live class session date.

For anyone considering developing an effective workshop, virtual class, or any type of training presentation, I highly recommend taking your ClassDesign class first!

I had been asked to design and deliver project management workshop for nonprofits recently. My challenge was taking such a broad subject and condensing it down into a four hour workshop. Not an easy task in such a short amount of time.

If it wasn't for your ClassDesign workshop, I can honestly say it would never have been able to pull this project management workshop off and get the high marks I received from my workshop participants. I can't wait to begin designing my next workshop!

Karyn, this is one of the best classes I have taken. Your material is extremely well organized and presented. I found the needs assessment very helpful and appreciated the resources that can simplify the process. Conducting an assessment is a great pre-marketing tool, as well as making sure the workshop is targeted to a need. I also benefited from the easy-to-use format for putting together a lesson plan.

Thanks for presenting a fantastic class. You shared all of the pieces required for creating a class or workshop, and you role-modeled by giving us such a valuable and well-designed class. I feel I now have the tools and greater confidence to complete the classes I've been wanting to offer to my network. Thanks also for being so available to support us during the class. It was great to have your personal input with our homework!

Cindy Hillsey, CPC, ACC

I can’t recommend the ClassDesign class highly enough! I have a lot of ideas for virtual classes, but I could never seem to bring all the pieces together. As a result, I never did anything. Karyn’s class changed all that for me! I now have the ‘missing piece’ – a template for how to effectively hold a virtual class. This template is gold. Now I can confidently go forward with my ideas knowing that I’ll be presenting them in a way that is cohesive, fun, and most importantly provides the learning experience my clients are looking for. Thank you, Karyn!
